Presented is an extremely substantial collection of 1959 Topps cards consisting of approximately 4,200 cards, highlighted by more than 160 Hall of Famers, including Hank Aaron, Al Kaline, and Ernie Banks. The classic 1959 Topps set features all the great stars of the era, in many cases more than once, as so many stars appear again on special multiplayer cards. This is a very consistent and presentable collection that grades 31% Ex to Ex-Mt (including a few better), 64% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 5% lesser. Keys: Five #20 Snider (three Vg-Ex and Vg), 40b Spahn (Vg-Ex+), 147 Cubs' Clubbers (Vg+), five 149 Bunning (Ex, Vg-Ex, Vg+, and two Gd+), two 155 Slaughter (both Vg), four 212 Aaron/Mathews (three Vg-Ex and Vg+), five 260 Wynn (four Vg-Ex and Vg), six 270 Hodges (three Vg-Ex, Vg, and two Gd), twenty-six D. Williams (three Ex-Mt, seven Ex, seven Vg-Ex, seven Vg, and two Fr), thirteen 295 Martin (five Ex, Vg-Ex, six Vg, and Gd), eleven 310 Aparicio (three Ex, three Vg-Ex, and five Vg), ten 338 Anderson RC (Vg-Ex, seven Vg, and Gd), fourteen 349 Wilhelm (two Ex, five Vg-Ex, five Vg, Gd, and Fr), three 350 Banks (Vg-Ex and two Gd), eleven 352 Roberts (Vg-Ex, five Vg, three Gd, and Fr), five 359 B. White RC (Ex and four Vg-Ex), eleven 360 Kaline (two Ex, six Vg-Ex, two Vg, and Gd), four 380 Aaron (Vg-Ex+, Vg+, Gd, and Pr), three 387 Drysdale (Vg-Ex, Vg, and Gd+), twelve 390 Cepeda (Ex-Mt, two Ex, five Vg-Ex, three Vg, and Fr), and fourteen 408 Fox/Aparicio (two Ex, four Vg-Ex, seven Vg, and Fr). This assemblage, which does not include any cards numbered higher than 419, features heavy duplication but provides an instant massive collection of cards from this popular 1950s Topps issue. Total: approximately 4,200 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000++.
